The gifts just keep on coming from Dr. Ivan Schrodt.
He donated $1.3 million and five Corvettes to the National Corvette Museum in 2015.
Now comes word that the ardent Corvette enthusiast has given two of his personal Corvettes to a technical high school not far from the Museum and the Corvette Assembly Plant in Bowling Green.
It’s just more of the same generosity from the retired doctor, who recently gave the pair of Corvettes to the Advanced Motorsports Foundation, which supports various programs at the Warren County Area Technology Center where teens learn trade skills to help them get a job after high school.
“I’ve been asked the question, ‘You’re not from Bowling Green or Warren County, why did you get involved in that?’ For me, what I saw was one of the more outstanding technical high schools that I’ve ever seen anywhere, an amazing program producing wonderful results,” Schrodt said in an interview with WBKO.
The donated cars will be modified and upgraded by students and faculty at the Warren County Area Technology Center for the 2019 Holley LS Fest. The September event will include driving competitions for any vehicles powered by GM’s LS family of V8 engines, including drag racing, slalom, autocross, timed road course runs, and more.
The technology center has received more than $90,000 in funding from Dr. Schrodt in the past two years, with some being used for scholarships for outstanding students, and he has no plans to stop his philanthropic efforts.
